Minzuno Toshikata woodcut triptych Chinski admiral in an interior ships engaged in battle
Item# 8620    $1400
Minzuno Toshikata woodcut triptych Chinski admiral in an interior ships engaged in battle

Minzuno Toshikata (Japanese, 1866-1908), colored woodcut triptych, depicting Chinski admiral Ding Ruchang popelniajacy samobojstwo in an interior, ships engaged in battle. The frame measures 20.5 x 34 inches and the woodblock print measures 14 x 27.5 inches. Very good condition. The photos show some reflection spots because it is under glass, which is very hard to photograph. Toshikata was born as Mizuno Kumejirō in 1866 in Tokyo to a plasterer's family. When he was thirteen years old his father, Nonaka Kichigoro, sent him to study with Yoshitoshi Tsukioka (1839-1892), who was to designate Toshikata as his successor. Yoshitoshi gave him the character toshi (年 or its variant 秊) from his own name as the first character of his art name Toshikata. Yoshitoshi is also said to have passed his artist seals along to Toshikata1. He also apprenticed for a time with the ceramic painter Yamada Ryuto and studied traditional Japanese painting (nanga) with Shibata Hoshu and Watanabe Shōtei (aka Watanabe Seitei, 1851-1918). In 1887, on Yoshitoshi's recommendation, he succeeded Yoshitoshi as the illustrator at the newspaper Yamato shimbun, where he achieved acclaim. He worked at the Yamato shimbum until 1894. During the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), which brought about a brief resurgence of woodblock printmaking, he created a large body of work depicting battle scenes. His work is some of the best to be produced during that period. He was active as a painter of genre and historical subjects, receiving awards of merit in 1898, 1899, 1900 and 1902 at the joint Japan Art Institute/Japan Painting Association (Nihon Bijutsuin/Nihon Kaiga Kyokai) exhibition and was active in the Japan Art Society (Nihon Bijutsu Kyōkai), and the Japan Painting Society (Nihon Kaiga Kyōkai) and the Academy of Japanese Art (Nippon Bijutsuin).
